By the time Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904) completed his 4th Symphony in 1874; he was still little known outside his native Bohemia. After applying several times for an Austrian state artist grant; he became known to Brahms; who recommended him to his publisher; Simrock. Brahms' friendship and influence on his young friend became apparent in Dvorak's music; but with the 8th Symphony that effect had been superseded by a strong nationalistic trait. The 3rd movement; 'Allegretto Grazioso;' is based on a song from an earlier opera; and the coda in a faster tempo recalls the 'Slavonic Dances.' These infectiously joyous melodies will be loved by students and audiences alike. This title is available in SmartMusic.
